Famous quotes containing the word bridges:

    On such a night, when Air has loosed
    Its guardian grasp on blood and brain,
    Old terrors then of god or ghost
    Creep from their caves to life again;
    —Robert Bridges (1844–1930)

    We live technologically, with man as the master of nature, man as the engineer, and let anyone who raises his voice against it stop using bridges not built by nature.... No electric light bulbs, no engines, no atomic energy, no calculating machines, no anaesthetics—back to the jungle.
    Max Frisch (1911–1991)

    ... this single span,
    Reaching for the world, as our lives do,
    As all lives do, reaching that we may give
    The best of what we are and hold as true:
    Always it is by bridges that we live.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
